Joining the ANU subscription 

In Overleaf there is a distinction between accounts and subscriptions (explained here). Users will not have to create new Overleaf accounts - you will be able to join the ANU institutional subscription with your existing account, whether it is on the free plan or an existing subscription. No data transfer or migration is required.

ANU users will be able to join the ANU institutional subscription (new or existing) from the ANU Overleaf portal page https://www.overleaf.com/edu/anu by adding/confirming your ANU institutional email.

Some questions that you may have are answered on these pages:

Cancelling your individual Overleaf subscription

Individual and group subscriptions are not cancelled automatically when you join the ANU institutional subscription.

You do have to take action to cancel your existing subscription. If you have an individual subscription, you should see a notification stating that you can cancel your subscription when you join the ANU institutional subscription.

Administrators of group accounts will receive an email from the Overleaf team letting them know about the institutional subscription.

Subscriptions can be cancelled from your Overleaf account, Subscription Settings page.

Request a refund for the unused portion of your subscription

When you cancel your individual and group subscription, the subscription renewal is cancelled but there is not an automatic refund.

If you would like to receive a prorated refund for the unused portion of your subscription, please reach out to support@overleaf.com and the Overleaf support team will process your refund request.
